Yes, It's Better Than Bouillon!

Better than Bouillon in jars

Better Than Bouillon is a super product!

No more breaking your fingers trying to crumble up a crusty old cube... or waiting hours for the darned thing to dissolve!

I use this ready-to-go stock day in and day out. I discovered it years ago and I swear by it.

Dissolves Easily—No Need To Crumble!

A rounded tablespoon makes a good cup of stock—but it's easy to add more stock for more flavor—conversely, add more water if the stock is "too tasty!" The photo at the top of the page shows the flavors I use regularly.

I use the chicken stock in this chicken noodle soup recipe; and the beef stock in this beef stew recipe.

Buy Locally

I order big jars which are then shipped directly from the company, but when I want to buy the smaller jars, I buy them at our local grocery store to save on shipping costs.

Unfortunately, they've changed "the rules" and now you can only buy the big jars at Costco. That's a shame if you're not a member... grrr.

I'll have to go bug someone I know who may have a membership there, as the nearest store is in Orlando (2 hours away for me).

Sometimes you don't need or want extra jars of clam base, for instance, but you surely need the convenience of the big backup plastic containers of the chicken base and the vegetable base stocks, IMHO.

Better Than Bouillon has a Long Shelf Life

They have a (very!) long shelf-life, so don't worry about Better than Bouillon expiring too soon. When you have opened a container, keep it in the refrigerator where it'll last for months too!

The flavors are delicious—and they have organic varieties too, along with vegetarian, reduced sodium, and kosher-based stocks! They also sell gravies and crock-pot seasoning mixes.

Many of our recipes include the bouillon brand "Better Than Bouillon" and for good reason. It's the easiest-to-use bouillon out there!

Heck, my dad says he can just drink the hot chicken stock on its own—it's that good. And I totally agree with him. Sometimes, the best thing about a soup of stew is the stock!

Our recipe eBook is available directly from Amazon as a Kindle eBook or as a Paperback.

You can get a copy of the recipe book in the green box, above.

BTB is Good for Your Dog Too!

Another reason for using Better Than Bouillon stocks - especially the chicken stock - is due to the fact it doesn't contain onion. Why is that important?

If you want to make your own dog food, (check out the book below, on the far right) you'll be reassured to know that my recipe uses Better Than Bouillon Chicken Stock.

This is so important because their chicken stock does not contain onion because ONIONS are poisonous to dogs!

Look for the Roasted Chicken Base in the Premium section.

Can You Make Your Own Bouillon?

Yes, you can absolutely make your own homemade bouillon! Here are some tips for making your own flavorful bouillon at home:

  • Start with a broth. For a vegetable bouillon, sauté aromatics like onions, carrots, celery, mushrooms, garlic, etc and simmer in water to extract flavors. For chicken bouillon, simmer chicken bones/parts in water. For beef bouillon, roast beef bones before simmering in water.
  • Add herbs and spices. Bouillon is all about infusing maximum flavor. Try adding herbs like parsley, thyme, bay leaves, and spices like black pepper, coriander, etc.
  • Simmer the broth for several hours. At least 2-3 hours of gentle simmering will help extract the most flavor from the ingredients.
  • Strain the broth through a fine mesh strainer. Discard the solids. This leaves you with a clear, concentrated broth.
  • Reduce the broth if needed to make it more intense. You want the homemade bouillon to be rich and flavorful.
  • Add salt and seasoning to taste. Get the seasoning just right according to your preference.
  • Store the bouillon in the fridge for up to a week or freeze for a longer duration.
  • Use about 1-2 teaspoons of the homemade bouillon in place of 1 bouillon cube in recipes. Adjust the amount according to taste and strength of your bouillon.

The great thing about homemade bouillon is you control the ingredients so it can be sodium-free, preservative-free, and tailored to your taste! Experiment with different herb/spice blends for unique flavor profiles.

ALSO NOTE: If making your own chicken stock for the doggie food, DO NOT ADD onions to the pan!
